    Register your system

    What is a system? A system represents:

    • A gateway which supplies the connectivity
    • A SIM card which give the network access (if any)
    • Some applications running in the gateway
    • Go on the Register activity
    • Select your module or gateway you are using
    • Fill the fields Name, Serial Number and IMEI
    • Click on Register
    • Follow the instructions on the right

      Check you have set your APN on the module.

    • Once the device has communicated, its status is green.

    Check the connection

    • Go on Monitor Activity > Systems
    • Select your system and display the System detail
    • Click on the Configure Communication button on the top of the page
    • Toggle on the Heartbeat check and click on the Ok button in the dialog box
    • At the top of the page, the communication status will be updated

    Manage your device

    Although it’s optional, it’s useful to synchronize your device with AirVantage at least once to check if configuration is correct.

    Have a look here how to synchronize your system and how to use the Device Management Features.

    Step 2: Design your application

    Implement your embedded AAF application, release and publish it on AirVantage.

    1. Download and install the AAF Developer Studio .
    2. Create your embedded application. For example, you can follow this tutorial to communicate with MQTT from a GX440 (or any ALEOS gateway).

    Step 3: Test your application

    Finally test your application by using this tutorial .

    Step 4: Define a dashboard and rules

    Once your system communicates correctly and data values are stored in AirVantage, you may want to automate the analysis by using rules and show them in a dashboard. Have a look to this tutorial to learn how to define a rule and design your operational dashboard.

    Step 5: Use the API

    Once your system communicates correctly with AirVantage and data values can be browsed and displayed, you may want to use them in your specific application. Have a look to our AirVantage API to learn how to use this API to build powerful applications.
